scarf: cost-plus world market
The necklace is a silver dollar with The Walking Liberty embellishment that my grandpa had made into necklaces for all his granddaughters. He was an avid coin collector, and kept all his coins in sweet smelling cuban cigar boxes, categorized by country and year. I got into the hobby when I was around 10, and he was so excited someone shared his passions. Whenever we came over he wanted to go through all his coins, and explain their origins to me, and I often left with a surprising amount of his collection to take home. I've been meaning to make some cool work of art out of all his different coins to hang in my home, so that they're not just shut away in boxes.
We went to Harmon's today :) The bread is fantastic, and we got some sourdough for paninis. we also tried to exchange the purple and yellow orchid for a white one, but there weren't any, and the flower lady was kind of insane. Then we went up the canyon a little bit to take pictures, and I found my favourite new location.
also, thanks SO much everyone for your kind and supportive comments on my last post! It means the world.
